Andre Roubo wrote one of the most influential books on wood working and the testament to his talent and the value of his book is that it is still quoted and admired and his thoughts on work benches are as important now as they were in 1770.
I recently came across two takes on the Roubo bench and thought that I would share them with you.
Stumpy Nibs' bench reflects a more blue collar, maybe even red neck interpretation of the classic roubo. His bench however is still a serious alternative plan for someone outfitting a shop on a budget.

Whatever you decide, keep working. And be open to new ideas and work spaces.
